Jefrey Vasquez-Calderon, 40, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree aggravated
manslaughter before Mercer County Superior Court Judge Robert E. Lytle on September 6.
Under the terms of the plea agreement, the state will recommend that Vasquez-Calderon be
sentenced to 22 years in state prison under the No Early Release Act.
The guilty plea is a result of an investigation conducted by the Mercer County Homicide Task
Force and the East Windsor Township Police Department. On Wednesday, February 27, 2019,
at approximately 8:30 a.m., East Windsor police responded to Sanchez’ residence in the first
block of Bennington Drive and found him unresponsive on the back patio area of the home.
There were visible wounds and trauma to Sanchez’ body and he was pronounced dead at the
scene.
Investigation revealed that Sanchez and Vasquez-Calderon left a nearby liquor store and
lounge together earlier that evening. After returning to Sanchez’ residence, Vasquez-Calderon
stabbed Sanchez numerous times with a knife. The two men were acquaintances and neighbors
who both lived in the first block of Bennington Drive.
Assistant Prosecutor Timothy McCann represented the state. Vasquez-Calderon is scheduled
to be sentenced on November 4.
